Unlock $11 Trillion IoT Value By @EsmeSwartz | @ThingsExpo #API #IoT

Last week’s #IoTuesday Twitter chat focused on the impact of the API economy on Internet of Things (IoT) as it transforms from Connected Devices to Connected Marketplaces. And IoT in turn creates the API economy. We had great participation from respected industry visionaries who share a view that APIs and API management, standards and interoperability play a critical role in the creation of IoT marketplaces. These days, there is not an industry or a consumer that is not familiar with the concept of IoT, whether from their view of the clichéd smart fridge to the impact of the Industrial Internet. It doesn’t matter what your business does or which industry you are serving. It also does not matter if you are a startup or an established enterprise with years of experience and a customer base in the 100s or 1000s. You should be asking yourself.

Machine Learning - Azure vs AWS By @SrinivasanSunda | @CloudExpo #IoT #Cloud

Machine Learning, which is a process to predict future patterns and incidents based on the models created out of past data, is definitely the most important part of the success of the Internet of Things in the enterprise and consumer space. The main reason is that without machine learning the entire backbone of the Internet of Things - event acquisition, event processing , event storage and event reporting - is merely a live display of events happening elsewhere and will not provide any value to its consumers. Think of a smart monitor in an oil well that monitors various climatic conditions and other factors that can cause a failure; unless the monitor is able to predict of a failure and corrects itself the usage of such solution is quite limited.

Effects of Omitting NODE_ENV in Express.js Apps By @DKhan | @DevOpsSummit #APM #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - 2 hours 53 min ago
Most developers learn best by examples, which naturally tend to simplify matters and omit things that aren’t essential for understanding. This means that the “Hello World” example, when used as starting point for an application, may be not suitable for production scenarios at all. I started using Node.js like that and I have to confess that it took me almost two years to quantify the huge performance impact of omitting a single environment variable. In fact it was just a coincidence that I even did it right in my previous projects.
